quick question
    #3398236 - 11/23/04 02:23 PM (13 years, 24 days ago)

i am getting ready to make a bulk grow, out of compost, and some blue meanies. this is what i am going to do: i have a 12qt pail, and i plan on putting roughly 2.5 lbs. of compost into the bucket, along with some blue meanie spawn. to make simple casing i know that you should put some casing mix on the bottom and on the top. the last time i made a bulk grow it got comtaminated. when i inspected further i found that there was a lot of liquid on the bottom of my container. i am wondering if i can put some casing mix on the bottom of my 12 qt. bucket in the hopes that this would soak up the liquid which caused my problem the last time. i hope this all makes sense, and any advice is more than welcome. peace to all.

There are different schools of thought when it comes to bulk, I like to layer my spawn with the bulk substrate, I usually apply a 1/4 inch layer of dry steril verm on the bottom. But honestly the times i've been lazy and didn't do it, i didn't notice a change in growing conditions or results. My advice to you is to be on top of your steriliztion. This includes the substrate, spawn, containers and where all of this mixing and mashing is actually going to take place. Try mixing in some sterile verm into the compost.

Wee, sleeket, cowran, tim'rous beastie,
O, what panic's in thy breastie!
Thou need na start awa sae hasty,
Wi' bickering brattle!
